Monarch house description

Monarch Four Seasons Chalet is the get-away for our family of 5 from Texas! We love the historic mining town of Garfield, CO (also known as Monarch) and we love the year around activities of the San Isabel National Forest that surrounds it. Monarch Mountain Ski Area is only 3 miles away but in addition to skiing, the winter offers snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Summers are filled with mountain biking the Monarch Crest Trail (rated one of the top ten mountain bike trails in the nation), hiking to pristine mountain lakes right from our front door, whitewater rafting in the Arkansas River, panning for gold or rock-hounding at nearby sites. Walk to the Monarch Mountain Lodge for a great meal or a soak in the hot tub ($4/day).

Sleeping arrangements include Queen size beds in the two bedrooms, a 3rd level loft with two Queen beds in separate areas, and two bathrooms. The sofa bed in living area is also a Queen. All linens and towels are provided. Amenities include a fully equipped kitchen, Direct TV, wireless internet, DVD/VCR player, telephone with free long distance, a large deck with log chairs, washer and dryer, and family style games for your enjoyment. There is no outdoor grill. Cell service is spotty - long distance calls are free.

Rates are based on 8 people. Add $25/nt per person over 8 people - 10 max. Two night minimum stay except holidays and spring break when there is a 4 night minimum. Local sales and lodging taxes will be added. Rental agreements must be signed and returned by email or mail at time of reservation.

Cancellation Policy A reservation may be cancelled more than 30 days prior to check-in but may be subject to a $75 cancellation fee. Sorry, no refunds will be given for reservations cancelled less than 30 days prior to check-in unless the unit can be re-rented for the same dates, or, in some cases at manager's discretion, you move your reservation to another date.

Key words: Monarch, skiing, chalet, cabin, family, kids, whitewater rafting, mountain climbing, hiking, mountains, Garfield, mining towns, bicycling, mountain biking, horseback riding.

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Our family is very active year-round in Texas, but we love spending ski vacations, and summers in Monarch! There is so much to do and we keep finding out more!

              Why the Owner Chose Monarch:
              We bought in Monarch for the ease of getting to Monarch Ski Resort but we quickly discovered all the wonderful activities during the summer as well.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Cooking all our own meals at the house makes traveling with kids so much simpler. We just stop at the grocery store on our way, then just sit back and enjoy the fun!
